Royal College of PathologistsMandatory
The five-year credit requirement is a minimum of 250 credits. It is recommended that participants record a minimum of 50 credits per year throughout their career. The five-year total is calculated on a five-year rolling cycle. You must make an annual return to the RCPath of an average of 50 credits recorded in your portfolio between 1 April and 30 June every year.
Failure to make a return for two consecutive years will result in suspension from the scheme.
The College has developed a quality assurance system to maintain the integrity of the CPD scheme. All participants are required to participate in the RCPath annual quality assurance process when selected.
